NVIDIA announces Quadro G-Sync option board
Apr 21, 2005
NVIDIA Corporation has announced the immediate availability of the NVIDIA Quadro G-Sync option board, complementing current genlock and framelock solutions. This latest solution, that connects to the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4400, delivers even higher performance, scalability, features, and upgradeability to current visualisation and broadcast customers who already leverage the benefits of commercial of the shelf (COTS) graphics.
Data from NVIDIA customers, such as the BP Center for Visualization, is a testament to the performance and capabilities of these solutions. BP Center for Visualization engineers integrated the NVIDIA Quadro FX 3000G into their oil exploration visualisation systems after an extensive economic and performance analysis. The findings have been nothing short of exceptional with the Center realising a dramatic improvement in visualisation performance, coupled with an order of magnitude reduction in system costs.
"We've been powering our Immersive Virtual Reality environment using NVIDIA hardware since the introduction of the genlock boards in 2003", said Jonathan Marbach of the BP Center for Visualization. "Compared to our previous solution, I've seen a 10x increase in triangle throughput and a 5x increase in frame rate for our Immersive Drilling Planner application. The new G-Sync option board works with the latest PCI Express graphics, so we expect to see another dramatic performance boost from the latest generation of hardware."
